Join Bill Randall in considering the many respects in which aging is an inherently spiritual process—not religious necessarily, but spiritual (broadly defined). Despite prevailing perceptions of aging as a matter of inevitable decline, the challenges and changes that come with it can be experienced as Nature’s way of nudging us into the adventure of truly growing old (vs just getting old)—growing in insight, understanding, and compassion.
The presentation will be at 4 PM, followed by supper.

While the term “empire” has come to have strong political connotations, an archaic use of the word simply means to hold absolute power over something or someone. Few who listen to or participate in music could deny its empire! This term’s concert will explore music’s empire through various cultures, time periods, and styles including works by Palestrina, Bach, Esenvalds, and Uusberg. This 80 voice choir is directed by Liska Jetchick.

The change of seasons often also brings an influenza outbreak. Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason, it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak.
